 how to make a block unique in autocad

one trick to make a block unique in autocad is to use the flatten command on a block and then it will result ina flattened version of the block(sample block 01-flat1) named “sample block 01-flat1” in the block name. the new block has a different name that we can modify it without affecting the other instances of that block, thus making it unique. Also if you do it again on the first block it automatically renumbers it the next one -flat2 and so on and so forth.

But pay attention: it only works in 2D.
